You’re right I have been knitting a Clanger!

It was good fun too. A bit fiddly here and there, but fun!

Here’s the free pattern I used if you’re tempted to make one for yourself. 

This one is a present for a good friend of ours who loved the Clangers as a small boy.

Whether he’ll actually want one for his 50th birthday remains to be seen…

    Wow, is he cute. Is “clanger” the same thing as anteater? Doesn’t really matter because cuteness supersedes anything else!

    He is so cute, love it.
    I cannot knit that well, never mind making a knitted doll;)

    It’ll probably be the most interesting and entertaining present he will get! It will make a nice change from all the bottles of wine.

    Loved the Clanger, better than the usual collection of socks and stuff. Just got to get it away from Oliver who has fallen in love with it. Thanks a billion Janet. Now can you do me a Green Iguana for Rose.

    Is that a species that really exists in britain, or were they made of drawings, film and animation ?
